Clinton at AIPAC 2010

Excerpts and full text of Hillary Clinton's speech at AIPAC 2010 here.

Phil Weiss commented:

Most significant, it seemed to me, was her statement that in the ’90s she traveled the world and no one talked about the Israel-Palestine conflict. Now everywhere she goes it’s all that other countries want to talk about, first or second or third on the list of issues. "We cannot escape the impact of mass communications." The internet. You and me…

But I can't seem to find reference to it... Phil's wishful thinking or my speed-reading?

And now that Obama seems to be back on track domestically (having finally obtained House majority for a watered down health care reform bill), might we see The One putting a bit more of his weight behind a resolution of the I/P conflict?

Stories like this will soon be used by the Lobby to explain why the US cannot push Israel into vacating the settlements. Why if we push them too hard the country will dissolve into civil war. The old extortion game. Push too hard and Israel will commit suicide, invade Iran, go collectively insane, whatever.
